Peters Asks Herald To Stop Lying

New Zealand First Leader Rt Hon Winston Peters has reiterated his call for the NZ Herald to cease its long running exercise in deception.

Mr Peters was responding to a front page article in today’s Herald, which states that he ‘had still not returned the phone call Dr Brash asked of him’.

“The fact is no such phone call has been requested of me by Dr Brash either to me personally or to my staff.

“So why would the Herald engage in yet another bare faced lie if its writers didn’t have their own little agenda – as uniformed, pathetic and insidious as it is.

“The NZ Herald these days should come with a disclaimer on the front page: ‘Political comment in this publication is the result of mindless mental meanderings by journalists who have difficulty with the truth’,” said Mr Peters.
